    2 monthes ago - By Android Headlines

    HTC has not given up yet, not at all, at least according to the company's chairperson, and former CEO, Cher Wang.

Cher Wang did say that the company is also aiming to achieve a significant VR revenue growth, though, so VR is still in HTC's sights, definitely...
